Death investigation into single-vehicle crash on Route 173, unincorporated Antioch – Cardinal News


Lake County sheriff’s deputies are investigating the afternoon death of a 76-year-old Rockford woman who was involved in a car accident.

On Sunday, May 12, 2024, at approximately 3:10 p.m., Lake County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to Route 173 west of Wells Lane in Antioch Parish for a single-vehicle traffic collision. Lake County Sheriff’s deputies arrived and found the sole occupant of the vehicle unconscious and having trouble breathing. The woman was taken by ambulance to an area hospital where she was pronounced dead.


Preliminary investigation revealed the woman was driving a 2000 Buick Century eastbound on Route 173. While she was driving, her vehicle left the road for an unknown reason and struck a tree. The damage to the Buick was not significant and it is possible that the driver suffered a medical episode before the accident.

The Lake County Coroner’s Office is planning an autopsy.

The incident remains under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Accident Investigation Team.
